The Australasian Vertebrate Pest Conference, held in Darwin 10-13 June 2008, is
the 14th in a series recommended by the Vertebrate Pests Committee (VPC). The
conference is held triennially, with the last conference convened in Wellington, New
Zealand in May 2005. The 2008 AVPC was organised in conjunction with the
Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre and the Northern Territory?s Dept. of
Natural Resources, Environment and the Arts.
The role of VPC is to provide coordination in policy, planning and overall strategies
which address pest animal problems. This conference was timely given that VPC
has just released its? Australian Pest Animal Strategy (APAS) which will provide
a national framework for the management of pest animals for the next five years.
Through these triennial conferences, VPC aims to increase the exchange of ideas,
knowledge and innovations of all those involved in pest animal management in
Australia and New Zealand as well as internationally.
This volume is a pre-conference compilation of working papers. The contents are not peer reviewed and apart from layout changes, have been printed as received from submitting authors. In many cases, the contents contain preliminary results only. Please consult with authors before using any information contained in any of the abstracts.
